CNN or COP? Please, the fact that old heads are on computers posting on the internet is proof of how wrong and dangerous stereotypes are... People with microphones recording stuff at a dead show is normal inside but weird outside? That's an odd paradox to me. There has to be someone who was partying or just hanging out and not out to arrest people or "defame deadheads" who was an audio nerd or sound artist with a tape recorder. I listen to the shows on here and they are great but they are not mine so I cannot chop them up make something with them. I have plenty of GD to listen to, I am more into creating it now though. I need something to create a soundscape to replicate a walk through a dead show parking lot in the late 80's to early 90's. It could be other bands but it dod not have the same vibe. I know some of you know what I am talking about and see where I am going with this. Thanks for all the advice... keep an ear out for me...

By the way CNN is a tool of the super governmentalists like Al Gore's wife who tried to censor all of our music not too long ago. How soon we forget.

I don't know about CNN and supergovernments, but I do know that Al & Tipper Gore are friends and fans of the Grateful Dead. Hell, Tipper has jammed with Mickey Hart on several occaisons, and yes, she is a drummer. One tour when the Dead were in DC and Bill & Hillary were out of town Al & Tipper entertained the Grateful Dead at the White House! At first I thought the same about the censorship issue, but I found that Tipper did not wish to censor music at all. Her concern was young kids hearing sexually explicit and other lryical content that maybe young kids might be better not hearing. Parents call, that's all. I may not have phrased that quite right but I hope you catch my drift. You have parental blocks so your kids can't watch porn on tv (or is that a supergovernment plot?), same difference. Turn on your local hiphop station tonight and see how suggestive some of the "clean" radio versions are, and maybe you will see why there are "parental advisory" stickers on cd's. That is all she wanted was a rating system similar to movies. I sell cd's for a living and a lot of parents let their kids buy the music anyway, some don't, but many do! Do you want your 11 year old kid to be able to buy xxx porno movies? Same difference, more or less. Don't get me wrong, I am opposed to any censorship of anything, and I think (hope) most of the others on this forum agree, but some things just aren't for kids. Please do your research before you slam anyone, especially someone that IS on our side...

OK, we are getting warmer! This is close to what we need. Take this raw footage, minus the added music and add an urban east coast twist and that is exactly what is required for the project. The era is right on... it definitely has the vibe. Thanks.. maybe the poster has some stock soundtrack.. hey wait there was a part at around 5:40 where the music stopped and the camera zoomed on the TV, you could still hear the band but it was muffled... I can digitally create the whole thing if I want to but I like authenticity... hey there was even a horse on pavement... this is damn close, thanks! Nice little piece of video... I know that guy in the tie dye...

No worries. Watch the whole thing, it's worth it; there's a memorable breakdown during the "Brokedown" encore...I don't think your request was "strange," in fact I'd love to see more lot sights and sounds. Good luck with your work, and please post it for all to see when you're done...
